ONE GOOD TURN is a kind of literary crime romp set during the Edinburgh Festival. Martin Canning, mystery writer, throws his bag at a baseball-wielding thug to save the life of a stranger. (Festival-goers believe it to be theater.) The incident reverberates through the lives of the many witnesses. Steven Crossley's measured British voice is a pleasure. He deftly develops voices for a myriad of damaged characters, including the timid Martin, deep-voiced retired P.I. Jackson Brodie (returning from CASE HISTORIES), a mysterious husky-voiced Russian with a pink "Favours" card in her bra, and many more. Crossley's pacing and patience are impeccable, especially through Atkinson's many detours. A.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
